Sizzling Shrimp

Marsha Gardner


Grilled shrimp skewers that are marinated in a great spicy marinade. Always a crowd pleaser. Great served with either basmati or jasmine rice and a salad.

How to Make Sizzling Shrimp


  1. Combine all ingredients with the exception of shrimp and bamboo skewers in a bowl and mix well.
  2. Add shrimp and stir to coat. Marinate, covered in the refrigerator for 3 hours or longer. During the final 30 minutes of marinating time, soak bamboo skewers in enough water to cover.
  3. Heat grill to medium-high. Drain shrimp, reserving marinade. Thread shrimp on skewers. Grill shrimp for 5 minutes or pink and firm to touch, turning once and basting with reserved marinade.
  4. Alternatively, broil 4-5 inches from heat in broiler, turning once and basting.
  5. Don't over marinate as the lemon or lime juice will actually cook the shrimp.
